Who We Like To Read

After a week of totally unscientific polling, in which visitors to my Facebook page listed their favorite crime/thriller/mystery writers, we came up with a list of 276 beloved writers. They’re listed here in a ranked order–and I’m vain enough to be relieved that visitors to my page like my books! With 276 writers, there are bound to be ones you never encountered, so here’s to some happy reading days ahead–a way to avoid thinking about the endless cold or endless drought–whichever your particular affliction may be.

  • Liz C.

    Am I blind, or is John Sanford missing from this list?

  • This was a list compiled simply from the names that people posted on my Facebook page. A number of readers are commenting on names they’d like to see included, so we’ll do this again in a few months

  • Seeley James

    I am honored to be listed by one of your fans. Wow.
